2013 Jingle Bell Run/Walk - Missoula Montana
December 7, 2013 Caras Park
|Due to the recent downturn in the temperature coupled with the wind chill - we are restructuring the Missoula Jingle Bell Run/Walk for tomorrow. As a health organization, we value the well being of those with arthritis and the supporters of those dealing with arthritis, and want to keep everyone's best interests in mind. We will still have a Jingle Bell Celebration tomorrow, December 7th but will be meeting at the Runners Edge Downtown beginning at 8:30a.m. A special thanks to the Runners Edge for your additional support on such short notice. |
We will have festivities including a costume contest, holiday photos, celebration of our mission to serve and THE FIRST EVER ELF OLYMPICS! Bring the kids down or join in the fun yourself to participate in Elf Volleyball, The Elf Search and Rescue, The Wreath Toss, Elf Crafts and much more all beginning at 9:00am. Event day activities will also sill include the costume contest judging beginning at 9am and recognition of our top fundraising superstars.
THERE WILL NOT BE A ORGANIZED TIMED RUN/WALK, however for those who would like to run/walk, you are more than welcome to participate by leaving the Runners Edge at 10:30am for your own personal training event. Then come back and warm up after with some goodies, festivities and fun.
Packet pickup is still at the Runners Edge downtown (325 N. Higgins Ave) today December 6th from noon to 6pm or stop by tomorrow during the festivities at the Runners Edge. Registration will be available as well as donation drop-off.
We encourage everyone to make the best of this weather change and come celebrate with us. Registration fee's are non-refundable, but you can still pick up your commemorative race shirt for the first ever non-running Jingle Bell Run/Walk and your registration donation will help fulfill our mission. The cold weather is especially painful for the 1 in 5 people in America with Arthritis and this is a strong reminder of the reason that the Arthritis Foundation is so vital in our community. .
